In Doreen Virtue’s weekly oracle card readings she’s been pulling a Knight card in each of her Tarot readings for about a month. I’ve been beginning to wonder, “Why?” While she reads the card in the basic spread meaning, I can’t help but begin to wonder what the broader meaning of the knight is and why they keep popping up in our weekly readings.
What is the knight trying to tell us? What is the lesson? Why does he keep appearing in the readings? Below is a link to an article on the Knights and their general meanings to each suit in the Tarot. As you will read, they mean change, movement and action. They are action-orientated and each suit has a specific additional meaning.
Additionally, here are the meanings described in the Angel Tarot Cards Guidebook from the “Blue Knights” Doreen has pulled:
Knight of WaterSituations: Deep emotions arising from situations or relationships impact your life. Falling in love or a wedding proposal is possible. You (or someone close to you) need to balance your emotions, lest you become overwhelmed. You may receive invitations to parties or other social opportunities.
People: An extremely emotional person who’s driven by a love of romance, art, and beauty. Someone who is charming, contemplative, and idealistic. Sensitive. Romantic. Imaginative. Enthusiastic. Refined. Moody.
Additional Meanings: Someone you can talk to. A dreamer. A flirt. Past-life connections. Melodrama.
Knight of AirSituations: Events in your life go into high speed! Your plans can now be implemented, and you should see a great deal of activity. Intellect and creativity rule the day, so adopt nontraditional viewpoints. Take the time to consider choices carefully.
People: An extremely intelligent person who has the ability to act fast and think even faster. A genuine “go-getter” who is unstoppable in support of a cause. Idealistic. Decisive. Knowledgeable. Tireless. Assertive. Sometimes tactless.
Additional meanings: An unanticipated situation or conflict. An impulsive decision. A “knight in shining armor.”

Consider the movement of a knight in chess.
The sum of all this has leads me to believe that the Knight continues to show his face for several important reasons in our readings:
1. idealistic love/romance is blossoming around us (enjoy it)
2. strategic planning/movement/action is required at this time
3. an important male figure in coming in our lives or is already in our life (show him some love)!
4. lots of emotions around us (holidays are here) and it’s important to balance these
5. what else?
